AllMusic Review by

Judy Trejo's second album for Canyon Records, Stick Game Songs, is a collection of songs sung while playing the stick game, an ancient gambling game that originated with the western Native American tribes. Some songs bring a player luck as they try to guess in which hand their opponent has hidden a marked bone or stick, while others help confuse the opponent. Trejo's album contains 18 of her favorite -- and luckiest -- stick game songs.
